"We're not the most talented group in the world, but the thing that is going to carry us through is to play as a team," Rangers coach John Tortorella said.
For us to be successful, we have to have the energy and the work ethic,” said Dubinsky, who won nine of 12 draws despite his spot on Anisimov’s left wing. “We’re not going to get by on talent alone.”
This team does not espouse the same mentality epitomized in the two quotes above. They don't look like a team that is capable of or wants to outwork their opponents.
It's disturbing enough that their work ethic from Torts hasn't really carried over. But many of these players are in contract years so one would think that they would be self-motivated. It's entirely possible that they need a coach lighting a fire under their ***** to get them going.
